Abstract

To mitigate the production cost and to improve the profitability of farming by using more efficient materials and machines, one of the best methods is to use the mulching and dripping method. Mulch being a natural resource has become one of the most effective techniques for optimum yield and better quality of crops by reducing the production cost. Also in dry areas maintaining moisture in soil is very important for crop life. Mulching the plastic paper film near the root area of plants is for eliminating the rise of weeds also to retaining water and avoid de-moisturizing the soil but this process requires lots of capital and time. .So 'Drip irrigation pipe and Mulching paper laying machine' will reduce the labour cost and time, It will do both the jobs i.e. laying irrigation pipe and mulching paper on the ground at a time. To meet this, it is required to use automatic mulching and drip laying machine. This review paper will flash the conventional and recently used new techniques used in farming. The machine to be formed will avoid the wages and time required. Even though this method of mulching is old and versatile its use in India is still limited due to availability issue and is limited only to large scale. The main motto of forming this machine is to avail the machine to small scale farmers in least cost.
